Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The GER Class D27 was a class of 2-2-2 steam tender locomotives designed by James Holden for the Great Eastern Railway. In 1888 Holden experimented by removing the side rods of T19 No. 721 to form a 2-2-2. In 1889 the first of a new class appeared: initially No. 740 which had been built on a 'Locomotive and Machinery' account. This was followed by two batches of ten on the more normal 'Letter' account. in 1893. They were built with 18-by-24-inch inside cylinders powered by a 140-pound-force-per-square-inch boiler. They were later rebuilt with 18-by-25-inch and 160-pound-force-per-square-inch boilers.show more
